Yep, handbrake itself is doing that, as part of its build process.

Build handbrake on your own system, burn the .tgz package on CD, install
that on his system with installpkg.

You'll need to build it on the same slackware version (13.37 or whatever
he's got) and the same architecture (i486 or x86_64). Use a qemu or
virtualbox virtual machine, if you have a different Slack version (or
a different OS entirely) on your system.
